TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Lieutenant Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Brigadier General Hossein Salami highlighted Iran’s latest missile achievements, saying the Islamic Republic is among few countries that has the knowhow to produce missiles capable of hitting moving targets.
Speaking to reporters in Tehran on Sunday, Brigadier General Salami stressed the necessity for the IRGC to pay heed to knowledge and research fields and said, “Our enemies have stood against us with complex and special tactics and techniques.”
“In order to confront them, we need to take the initiative and employ special methods, techniques and tactics,” he added.
“Regarding the issue of production of ballistic missiles for hitting moving targets, I should say that we are among a handful of countries that have gained the knowhow (in this field),” the commander noted.
Iranian military experts and technicians have in recent years made great headways in manufacturing a broad range of indigenous equipment, making the armed forces self-sufficient in the arms sphere.
Iranian officials have repeatedly underscored that the country will not hesitate to strengthen its military capabilities, including its missile power, which are entirely meant for defense, and that Iran’s defense capabilities will be never subject to negotiations.
